• Allergic Rhinitis Complications


Allergic rhinitis can have a significant impact on daily activities and performance in school.

If not treated, it may lead to complications such as Sinusitis and Otitis Media.

Sinusitis: If allergic rhinitis is not treated or treated improperly, infection from the nose can proceed into the sinuses surrounding the noses causing sinusitis.

Bronchial Asthma: Allergic Rhinitis is a disease characterized by hypersensitivity to certain factors. This can also trigger a similar hypersensitivity (allergy) in the airways of the lungs and trigger breathlessness, cough and wheezing leading to Bronchial Asthma.

Otitis Media: Infection from the nose may also spread to the middle ear through a connecting tube called Eustachian tube and cause infection called otitis media.
